Public Safety Transformation

On June 26, the City Council proposed an amendment to the City Charter to be referred to voters in November. If approved by voters, that amendment would create a new Community Safety & Violence Prevention Department and remove the Police Department from the Charter.

See the Council's proposed amendment.

On July 20, the Charter Commission introduced its own proposed amendment to be referred to voters in November. That proposal would eliminate the minimum required staffing levels in the Police Department [Section 7.3(c)].

See the Charter Commission's proposed amendment.

The proposal has been referred to the Charter Commission for its review as required by state law. The deadline to submit a ballot question this year is August 21.

Learn how the Charter can be amended and view current proposals for amendments.
